Hi, I’m Kam

I build SaaS products and Web apps.

As a Full-Stack Software Engineer and Technical Lead in Kobe, Japan, I love creating delightful digital products using Ruby on Rails and AWS, with a fondness for good UI/UX.


Projects I've worked on

Clients and Employers


Strategy & Direction

I can help you analyse business problems and advise technologies and software solutions to solve them.

Software Development

As a full stack developer, I can bring designs and prototypes to life using Ruby on Rails and front end Javascript libraries.

Technical Review

Leveraging my 25 year history in building software, I can conduct technical reviews for code quality and development process improvements.


Work Experience



Dec 2010 - Current

As CTO, I helped it grow from a small startup to a multi million dollar company with over 30 staff. Along the way I've led a team of engineers to build a dashboarding and analytics SaaS, setup a 30 person on-premise call centre, built an event tracking and data pipeline capable of handling thousands of RPS, and applied machine learning to optimise marketing spend.

Built a Real Estate SaaS to manage properties, inspections, vendors and tenants that served over 400 real estate agencies in Australia; one of Australia's first large scale Ruby on Rails projects.

Of my own initiative, I turned the website development arm of the business from a loss leader to high profitability by developing a hierarchical, multi-tenant CMS using Ruby that sharply decreased costs in building new real estate websites and property portals.

What Clients and Colleagues have to say ...

Several years after our departures from iProperty, Khamsouk remains a loyal and inspiring colleague that truly has his finger on the pulse of emerging web technology.

Kam is business savvy and his input on projects from a marketing, design, development and business perspective demonstrates that his overall view in the digital realm transcends typical programmers.

Having developed numerous large scale Ruby web applications and content management systems, I recommend Kam to anyone after a solid technical lead, Ruby expert and/or front end web developer.  He's a pretty cool guy to have a chat with too.
